Description

This is a pretty rare item, a vintage surplus US Issue flight suit. This type of flight suit saw use in the 50's & 60's, Korea and Vietnam, but also in the early NASA programs. its got some great space age design to it. Made from green ripstop nylon, the suit is very well fitted all around. It features a great, diagonal zipper running from the right hip across the body to the left collarbone. Its a large, zinc alloy zipper that is really distinctive. It has a stand up band collar that can be turned down or up. Left breast has an internal zipper pocket, right breast has a snap closure flapped patch pocket. The left sleeve has a pen pocket on the shoulder, and the cuffs have a closure as well. The inside of the legs and the ankles have another great zipper detail that goes all the way up the leg and has 2 zipper pockets on the calves. A VERY unique item, these are getting harder and harder to find. A great item for reenactors, but this could also be used for a number of cosplay/ costume looks including The Expanse, Star Wars, Fallout, Post Apocalyptic, a lot of options for this suit.

In overall excellent shape, there are a few areas that are slightly discolored (see pics) due to age, but they are very regular discolorations, doesnt look like a stain or anything. There is one area on the inner right knee that was repaired with a patch sometime in the past, and the repair patch has started to fray some (see pics) but that area is still covered, its not a hole in the suit, and can be easily repaired. This is actually the flight suit version of this, not the G- suit version, it has no internal air bladders or hoses. Please message me with any questions.
